I lived in Benton for about 2 years and I hated every minute of it. It is loud and noisy for such a small town. It is right in the middle of a major road that connects sikeston to kelso so there is alot of traffic. Mostly the neighbors I found were all noisy and played loud music all the time. It has a post office, court house, gas station, 2 diners, a photography studio, churches, a grocery store, a florist, carpet store. It was a cute town, I just couldn't stand the lack of respect that people who lived their had for their neighbors (and I'm sure not everyone is this way).

It always took around 15 minutes to get from Benton to the exit in Cape Girardeau. If you really want to know the distance then you should use a map such as google or mapquest to get accurate measurments.

Oh and after the bar burned down they put a car dealership in it's place. They sell about 20 used cars.

It's a nice place if you're Catholic...

If you're Southern Baptist, I would suggest Blodgett instead...

I moved to Benton about 2 years ago and I love it. I moved from another small town that had gotten really rough. I think Benton is a quiet town in its self.Although it is close to hwy 55,and they have the race track noise in the summer.But I find the people very nice and willing to help you in anyway. I have very nice neighbors.
